I've been using Revlon Colorstay for a year now. This is with out a doubt the best drugstore foundation, and I've heard so from many other people. The coverage is medium to full and it wears amazingly. It doesn't melt off and disappear through out the day. I find that I don't wear this one as much in the summer time because it is a full on foundation and it doesn't feel as light on your skin. I have normal/dry skin and the dry formula works well. I find this foundation is matte enough that I don't need a setting powder with it. I have one con and that is the color range. There are more than enough colors for everyone, but I find myself having to mix the Sand Beige and Buff together to get a perfect match. Personally, I like to apply it with my fingers. I'm still using it and I plan on continuing to use it for awhile. With the $10 price tag, you won't regret trying it out.
Changing my rating from 4 to 5 lippies due to experimenting with other foundations and always going back to Revlon Colorstay. I'm one of those people that doesn't really see the purpose of buying a Chanel foundation for everyday use, especially as foundations go quick for me. I really love this stuff. It lasts forever, gives great coverage, is very inexpensive, doesn't break me out, and now that I've been fake tanning, I've found a perfect color match. Flawless foundation.

Not yet my HG foundation, but pretty close... it's the one that lasts the longest before I become sort of a shiny shiny disco ball. I found a pretty close skin tone match, so I'm pretty happy with it. Nevertheless, it does need a pump cause it's not that easy to get it out. A bit pricey for a d/s foundation, but not as expensive as h/e ones.

This was an expensive foundation for the drugstore, I found that it was cheaper at my Target though. I used this a lot through out the winter, but I wouldn't use it during the summer. The only big drawback about this product is that it doesn't have a pump so getting the foundation out can be a bit messy.

I actually bought this product from reading the reviews on here and I love it!
I have dark skin and I found my match perfectly and it stays on all day and even into the night. My complaints are that it should come with a pump and the smell. If you are looking for something inexpensive and that will hold up throughout the day without touching up you got it here.

I have really oily skin and this foundation prevents me from getting oil during the day. It comes in a great range of colors, its full coverage and inexpensive. I think it is one of the best foundations out there. It dries with a matte finish and doesnt leave your skin feeling sticky. If you have oily skin i recommend this. I have been using it for years and i will keep buying it!

I use the Combo/Oily formula in 300 Golden Beige and it's a perfect match for me. The color in the bottle is lighter than what it actually looks like. Just a warning. I love using this for nights or when I do my costuming, and it photographs like a dream. (You can see how here http://bit.ly/k1jmfZ) I have major acne scarring on my cheeks, and this foundation covers them amazingly. (For a reference, I set it with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural) It's really not an every day foundation, but I love pulling it out on special occasions. I've had people ask me what it is when I'm wearing it, and they're so suprised to learn it's a drugstore foundation. I'm almost tempted not to tell them and have it be my own little secret! ;) lol My only complaint is the fact it doesn't have a pump. I feel like if it did, this foundation would be perfection!

I have used all different foundations and could never seem to find a color that fit me. After trying this one it worked for me. It lasts all day. Only thing is that it creases. And I wish that it came with a pump, because I am always wasting product. What I am going to do is to buy a bottle with a pump and put the foundation in there.

I've been wanting to buy this for a while but was holding off to finish my bare essentuals (in medium tan). before dropping another $25+ on that or another high-end foundation I decided to finally give this a try...got the 320/ 'true beige' shade and it's an excellent match for my NC37 skin! I pour some product on the back of my hand and apply with a MAC 187 skunk brush that I spritz with the MAC fix+ spray...it looks great! smooth (since I apply some aquafore ointment on very dry patches, like around my nose, before applying the foundation) and matte, which is a finish I really like on my combo skin. Also, since i use the fix+ I get a light coverage finish which I prefer since I dont have many problem areas to cover- however, if you like heavier coverage, its totally buildable. it's quite long lasting and hard to come off, so when you want to wash if off make sure to rinse several times (when I want to clean the back of my hand after application, it takes several washes w soap!)...this stuff is great and extremely affordable- i dont see any reason to go out and buy another more expensive foundation anymore. My sking tends to be very clear, but I'll update in case this causes any breakouts.
UPDATE: Yup, about 2 weeks of regular use led to breakouts! and itchiness right after application. I'd still recommend if you need the long lasting coverage at an affordable price. but not for me!

I probably have one of the worst skin quality of just about anyone I know. I am a constant sufferer of cystic acne (which if anyone has ever had them, you know they are extremely painful, red and super hard to get rid of).
I can get stressed out easily, which does not help my skin in the least.
I purchased this product a while back, and have had to repurchase three different shades because I cannot match my skin tone (even when I was 'matched' at a drug store by a so-call professional).
I find that any shade I get, it is either too pink or far too yellow. I cannot for the life of me match my skin tone, and probably will not be able to ever match it with this product since I am extremely pale and in between a pink and yellow undertone.
I have severe scarring on my cheeks from years of excessive acne, and I find this product does not cover the scars as much as I'd like. Even with a concealer, I find I have to apply a crap load of concealer to cover my blemishes.
It is also very hot and humid where I live, and the foundation does not seem to stay on my skin.
-The coverage is medium, and if you don't have a lot to cover you can end up with a very flawless look (If you're lucky enough to find a match)
- It dries quickly and fairly matte
- You can use a wet sponge to delay the drying so it's easier to work with
- With a damp sponge, blending is very easy.
- Lasts longer than most foundations (even against LITTLE oil)
- The foundation does not have a full enough coverage for extreme acne and acne scarring (even with a concealer)
- Apply a lot of this foundation to COVER these blemishes will leave you with a gross, cakey, and finger-print hazard finish. (touching your face will leave an imprint, or rubbing your face on something will leave a smudge)
- Creases HORRIBLY in fine lines and wrinkles
- Dries darker than what it is in the bottle
- Does not hold up against oil nearly as well as it says it does (especially in humid weather)
- If your complexion is in between yellow and pink undertones, you will have a serious problem with finding the right shade
- After five hours, if you have very oily skin, the foundation will just slide off (just like any other foundation you buy)
- Has a high amount of transfer (kissing hazard)
- Does not give a natural finish - looks like you're wearing makeup
- Dries out my skin horribly- to the point that it flakes and peels
- Brings attention to dry skin - makes it look horrible
- Makes pores look larger
- Breaks me out something horrible.
Considering I have very oily skin and bad scaring, this is currently the only product that does a half-decent job that I can afford, but if I had the funds and knew where to get proper products, I would never repurchase this.
This product would be ideal for someone who has slight acne/discolouration and slight oil, but not someone who has an extremely oily face and sever acne/discolouration. This product is also not good for someone with sensitive skin because it will break you out and dry you out. I would also not suggest this to older women who have an abundance of fine line and wrinkles, because it will glob up in these and make them more noticeable.
I would not recommend this product, but unfortunately have no other choice but to keep using it until I find something better.
